How I COMPLETELY fell head over heels with Tenerife!

Ok, so it wouldn’t have been my first choice. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve spent plenty of time partying my way around Bondi beach, years in fact. But at 35, I wasn’t really looking to be in the midst of 20 year olds drunkenly staggering around black volcanic beaches and falling out of bars. But just like Ibiza has its other less hedonistic yoga spiritual side, so does Tenerfie.

I couldn’t have been more wrong about this place! We were located in the stunning Coste Adeje. Palm fringed beaches and lush floral gardens surrounded by 5 star hotels more frequented by the Beckhams than the TOWIE cast!

Just take a look at a few of my latest photos from this area and prepare to change your mind!

How I RADICALLY Increased My Twitter Reach With Triberr

Oh the joys of Twitter. A continuous need to engage and post unique content at least 3 times a day! Is there an easier way to build up followers rather than selling our souls to purchase them? Let’s have a quick look at one bloggers experience with a sharing platform called Triberr.

Obviously, its easy enough to follow hundreds so they follow you back, but what about your followers actually mentioning you in their posts or re tweeting you? As a start out blogger, I knew how vital social media was to increase my brand name and traffic but where to start with my 196 followers?

This is where Triberr came in.


Triberr is a social community where you can join tribes in your chosen sector, and then share tribe members posts through each others Twitter platforms.

For example, I joined 3 travel blogger tribes with a reach of over 2 million followers.
With my measly 196 followers, it would have taken me years to reach that amount of followers with the limited time I had for my blog!

I created a profile and simply added my RSS feed so that other triberr members could share my posts to their followers and within 2 weeks, the results speak for themselves. Some tribes have a HUGE reach of  50 million plus but to join you need to have at least 3,000 followers yourself. Which is what I’m working up to!

Remember the more posts you share of your tribe mates, the more return you tend to get.
